      Josh Hamilton was an American actor born on June 9, 1969 in New York City, New York. The son of actor Sandra Kingsbury and actor/director Dan Hamilton, Josh would also eventually have step-parents in show business as well. His father would marry actor/writer Stephanie Braxton, best known for writing for "As the World Turns" (CBS, 1956-2010), just as his father was known for directing episodes of the soap opera. His mother would marry Theodor Timreck, a director who worked with Hamilton for his acting and film debut, "A Good Dissonance Like a Man" (1977); he also acted with his mother in the project. Hamilton studied theater at Brown University, and made his television series debut in 1984 with an episode of "All My Children" (ABC/TOLN, 1970-2011, 2013). He won a Daytime Emmy for his performance in an episode of "CBS Schoolbreak Special" (CBS, 1980-1996) in 1991, and starred in "Alive" (1993) alongside Ethan Hawke and Vincent Spano. Hamilton led the cast in Noah Baumbach 1995 film "Kicking & Screaming" (1995), then began making more episodic appearances on television, such as "Sex and the City" (HBO, 1998-2004) in 2000 and "The Practice" (ABC, 1997-2004) in 2003. Hamilton married producer Lily Thorne in 2005, with whom he has one child. He landed a role in Sam Mendes' "Away We Go" (2009), and made three episodic appearances in different roles throughout the run of "Louie" (FX, 2010-15). Hamilton played Robert Irwin alongside Leonard DiCaprio in Clint Eastwood's "J. Edgar" (2011), then collaborated with Baumbach again with "Frances Ha" (2012). In 2013, he joined the cast of the third season of "American Horror Story" (FX, 2011-present), subtitled "Coven." Hamilton starred in the David Tennant-led miniseries "Gracepoint" (Fox, 2014) and acted in Oscar-nominated "Manchester by the Sea" (2016). He appeared in another Baumbach project, "The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)" and began playing Matt Jensen on "13 Reasons Why" (Netflix, 2017- ) in 2017. Hamilton played the father of Elsie Fisher's character in Bo Burnham's critically acclaimed "Eight Grade" and starred in Ethan Hawke's directorial debut "Blaze" in 2018.
